Four years ago, German watch brand A. Lange & Sohne combined the stop-seconds mechanism for the tourbillon with the zero-reset time-setting feature, in their 1815 tourbillon, allowing the watch to be stopped and then set with one-second accuracy. Today, Lange introduces the watch in a 100-piece limited edition with a white enamel dial.
The special edition 1815 Tourbillon watch features a large aperture at the 6 o'clock position revealing the one-minute tourbillon, suspended beneath a black polished bridge. Equipped with the calibre L102.1, the sapphire-crystal caseback of the 39.5mm piece offers a view of the manufactured calibre which is decorated with a diamond end stone in a screwed gold chaton on the fourth-wheel bridge.
The platinum cases are consecutively numbered from 001/100 to 100/100. The enamel white dial feature blued-steel hands, Arabic numerals, and a railway-track minute scale synonymous with the 19th and 20th century pocket watches. The 1815 Tourbillon sits on a black hand-stitched alligator leather strap with a solid-platinum deployant buckle.
